Houston Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins could be limited in the second half of his team’s Divisional Round matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs. He suffered a rib injury toward the end of the first half of Sunday’s contest, after hauling in a 38-yard reception in the third quarter. He had his ribs x-rayed at halftime, according to CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson.

Hopkins returned to the field after halftime and appears poised to play in the second half of the contest. But his condition is something to monitor. He has tallied five receptions for 58 yards so far.
